Pupil Premium 2020 -2021

Pupil Premium (not Special Educational Needs)

Woodcroft receives additional money to support the needs of its pupils. A major element of this funding is comprised of the Pupil Premium to raise standards of those eligible for free school meals.

The Pupil Premium Grant is allocated to schools in April at the start of the Financial Year. However, expenditure is monitored in line with the Academic Year.

The 2020-21 allocation combines elements of two grant periods:

  1. The grant available from September 2020 to March 2021 of £114,090
  2. The grant available from April 2021 to August 2021 of £82,381

All expenditure is monitored and approved by the school’s Governing Body. This ensures that it is used to the benefit of the whole school and effectively targets those in need.
